Thanks Lucky Pink for my cool new tripod gismo. No more trying to balance the camera on rocks to get a group photo.

Well, I wasn't a secret Santa or anything. But a few years ago, a SuperTopian (please confess!) very kindly sent me copies he had of "A Climber's Guide to the Coastal Ranges of British Columbia" (Dick Culbert, 1965) and of "Cloudwalkers" (Paddy Sherman, mid-1960s). He didn't need them, and thought to reduce clutter. Anyway, I had copies of both, and so now have given the duplicates to my brother.

The original gift was in mid-summer, but now it's been passed on.

Did your SS make the handmade cutting board? Very pretty. Glad the cat has the sense not to lounge on the cutting board - things could get bad very quickly. No cat tacos!

I am finally home, three days later than intended, and have eagerly opened my gift. Mike, thank you for the awesome gear. Thin IS always in ;)
I will bring the camera home tomorrow and post up photos. We all love climbing gear pr0n, right?
Plus I am so jet lagged I will be using the gift card for coffee to kick start my day.

My santa also gave me some marbles. Was it that apparent that I've lost mine?

Whew!

hey there say.... well, johntp, you know what they always say...

childhood is fleeting... marbles are one way to keep it fresh in heart, i'd reckon...

now, you just need some competition, and you'll never grow old... ;)

I do love marbles - especially the see-through ones. Not sure what it is, but they are so pleasing. CooL!

That is a nice quilt, John!

I'm pretty pissed off. I ordered Tony's gift on Dec. 13th and it hasn't arrived yet. WTF???

I'm in contact with the supllier and Tony about it, but the thrill is gone... Sorry, Tony. I WILL get you your gift, but it pisses me off a bit that that the clowns haven't delivered the goods.

I will make it up to you, dude. Due to the nature of the gift I intended to send you, there may be some flakiness from the sender I suspect.

hey there say, the lisa.... ooops, had forgot to welcome you home... glad your trip went well... :)


also, crimpie... wow, i love marbles, too... sometimes the cats' EYES remind me of them, as they glow in the dark...

also, bluering... sometimes, too, even a late gift, can work to be perfect timing... so hang in there, on not feeling bad... if you can...

i wanted to do something for our "other neighborhodd" mail lady, as patty ann marie, really loves waiting for her... but i had no time...

nearly had no time, here too, barely hit the "finish line",
so "chin up"---perhaps it will turn out to be the "most perfect time" of all for tony... (though i really understand about the fun, for the "kick over the goal post" at proper time, too...


three cheers, for doing your best... ... :)
